I just looked at the long range forecast for this coming Sunday-68 degrees! This is April 2nd so this is not an April fool. The temperatures leading up to Sunday will be steadily higher though not always totally sunny. Just in time, too!
Yesterdays post shared the link to the 30 Days of Cycling Challenge, and it was indeed a challenge this morning to be out riding a bicycle. The 30 Day challenge is a great lead up to the National Bicycle Challenge organized by the League of American Bicyclists. The information on the challenge site advises the aim is to have 50,000 riders pedaling 20 million miles from May 1, 2013 until September 30, 2013. It is open and free to anyone who lives in the U.S. or works for an organization with U.S. employees.
Every time you get on your bike the miles count. Whether they are for fitness, fun, or transportation make sure to join and log them on nationalbikechallenge.org. Miles pedaled on a stationary bike or trainer do not count. I created team R-D Bike Shop. You can join our team by emailing or calling our shop, or you can ride individually.
